LGBT Workplace Stories

We believe that anyone can be a role model. A role model understands the influence they have and uses that influence to create positive change.

By sharing your story you’re doing just that – showing others that it's possible to be comfortable and successful at work without compromising on who you are.

These are the stories of LGBT people from across the world of work. Some speak of the change they’ve made at their workplace, some discuss the opportunities they've had as visible role models, and others explore the challenges they’ve faced along the way. All share the message that bringing your whole self to work is both liberating and powerful.

Each story is accompanied by a poster, which you can print and display at your offices or share as an infographic on your intranet. Sharing these stories is a powerful way to encourage LGBT people within your organisation to come forward and share theirs too.
